allsole has compiled a Buyer’s Guide, answering all of your questions from what size to get, to how to style Hunter wellies…
#1 Do Hunter wellies come up big or run small?
Hunter wellies are true to size and by no means come up small. It has been said that they come up big if anything. However, their fittings, on the whole, tend to be true to size.
#2 What size Hunter boots should I get if I am in between sizes?
If you usually wear a half size it is recommended that you wear a half size down to get an ideal fit. However, if you’re looking to wear them with a thick sock or insole, buying a half size up to the bigger size might be most beneficial.
#3 How do Hunter boots fit?
Hunter wellies have been best known to fit comfortably. The same applies to whole number sizes that if you’re wanting to wear a thick sock or insole then it is recommended that you opt for a larger size to accommodate this extra insulation for your foot.
#4 Best Hunter wellies for wide calves?
There are many questions surrounding whether Hunter wellies are appropriate for people with wider calves. The answer is yes! If you’re not wanting the wellies to be snug, then opt for the short wellies that have a wider circumference where the calf sits within the boot or for the wellies that offer an adjustable strap around the back.

#5 How to look after Hunter wellies
To ensure that your Hunter’s last you a lifetime, be sure to wipe them clean after use and let them dry naturally. To avoid any discolouration, leave to dry out of direct sunlight or near artificial sources of heat.
If there are stubborn marks, stains or dirt, once the boots are dry, clean again with hot soapy water.
Avoid using abrasive tools to remove dirt, a tough sponge should do the trick. Do not store boots whilst wet as this can cause odours and creases when left folded, and don’t use solvents on your boots.
For the best Hunter boots care, use Hunter’s own rubber boot buffer and cleaning wipes.
